  Northern Va. police agree to investigate each other’s officer shootings, but not Fairfax or Loudoun Veteran detectives from 11 police departments will form a team, without a detective from the agency involved in the shooting, to conduct an impartial probe. But three of the largest law enforcement departments in Northern Virginia — the Fairfax County police, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the Alexandria police — declined to join the response team. Fairfax said it had confidence in its detectives’ ability to be fair and transparent, and Loudoun and Alexandria said they work with the Virginia State Police when a deputy or officer is involved in a serious use-of-force incident.

According to SPIEGEL information, the Federal Police plans to significantly tighten border controls from Sunday morning to prevent the entry of passengers infected with the coronavirus. The Ministry of the Interior instructed internally that all people entering from the newly defined high-incidence areas should be "strictly controlled". To this end, the federal police are mobilizing more staff, especially at Frankfurt and Munich airports, to check all passengers.

Americans planning international travel will need to factor in a new rule that will require a negative Covid-19 test in order to board a flight back to the United States. Alternatively, visitors can get a test at the airport, and quarantine until the results are available, usually within 24 hours.

Temporary border checks and travel restrictions are necessary to stop the coronavirus from spreading further. General information: The Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community is urging citizens The decision whether to allow entry at the border is at the discretion of the border official.

To protect against the introduction of new corona cases to Germany, the federal government has classified significantly more countries than as risk areas . What is particularly new is the listing of countries in which the so-called 7-day incidence is over 200. All travelers from these countries must do a corona test before they leave for Germany and are only allowed to enter Germany with proof of a current negative result.

The Robert Koch Institute published the new corona risk areas with a very high incidence on Friday. New on the list are Albania , Andorra , Bolivia , Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iran , Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Colombia , Kosovo , Lebanon , Mexico , Montenegro , North Macedonia , Panama , Serbia and the United Arab Emirates.

  Off-duty police were part of the Capitol mob. Now police are turning in their own. There’s been a notable break in the so-called “blue wall of silence,” an aspect of police culture that encourages officers to ignore misconduct by their peers. At least 13 off-duty law enforcement officials are suspected of taking part in the riot, a tally that could grow as investigators continue to pore over footage and records to identify participants. Police leaders are turning in their own to the FBI and taking the striking step of reminding officers in their departments that criminal misconduct could push them off the force and behind bars.

Similar rules will apply to Northern Ireland from Thursday. Travel corridors, which exempted passengers arriving from some countries from quarantine, have been suspended throughout the UK. Are you planning to travel to or from the UK? How will the quarantine regulations affect you?

Several Presidential proclamations established restrictions on the entry of certain travelers into the United States in an effort to help slow the spread of With specific exceptions, foreign nationals who have been in any of the following countries during the past 14 days may not enter the United States.

A number of European nations are also classified as high-risk areas according to the new list. Estonia , Latvia , Lithuania , Portugal , Slovenia , Spain and Czech Republic are listed as particularly dangerous because of the high incidence rates there. A negative corona test and subsequent quarantine are therefore also mandatory when entering from these states.

Large parts of Europe are still listed as "normal" risk areas, only individual regions in Greece , Finland , Norway , Austria and Denmark are excluded. In addition, all those entering from South Africa , Brazil , Ireland and Great Britain must show a fresh corona test, as mutations of the virus have occurred in these states, which researchers consider to be more aggressive and more contagious. This rule has been in place since the beginning of the year.

During the close checks, the Federal Police primarily want to check whether all travelers have taken the mandatory corona test before departure and have entered the online database that is to be used to control the quarantine in Germany. The authority cooperates closely with the local health authorities and wants to report passengers without the necessary documents or the mandatory test.

In Frankfurt am Main the officials will have a lot to do, on Sunday alone almost 20 landings from the newly listed risk areas are planned. In addition, there are machines from countries that have already been classified as risk areas such as the USA . With the strict rules, the federal government wants to prevent the population from traveling as a matter of principle, as any form of mobility supports the spread of the virus.
